Think First! — Comprehensive Injury Prevention for Children
Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death among children in San Diego County. In order to reduce death and disability from unintentional injury, Sharp began educating students 14 years ago how to "think first" before participating in activities that may lead to such injuries. Founded in 1986 by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurosurgeons, Think First! was initially directed at adolescents. In 1998, Sharp began teaching lower elementary school children in cities throughout San Diego and Imperial Counties the key messages of careful behavior for a myriad of activities, which include motor vehicle transportation, water sports, bicycling and recreational activities. Violence prevention is also addressed.
